Cheeseball Pinwheels are great for parties, get to-gethers or just easy-to-grab snacks. And, there’s not a lot of kitchen know-how or tools to make these. Therefore, anyone can make these.

What are pinwheels made of

  • Cream cheese
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Accent
  • Dried beef
  • Green onions
  • Flour tortillas

Pinwheels are so versatile. Change the “innards” and you have a different pinwheel.  This is one of our cheeseball recipes (not posted on here yet) that I made the Pinwheels out of.  They are very similar to my Classic Turkey and Cheese Pinwheels.


Looking for more pinwheel ideas…keep on a scrolling,  Some are listed at the bottom.

How do you roll pinwheels

The cream cheese mixture is spread onto the tortilla and then rolled up as tightly as possible.  Scroll to the recipe and find the step-by-step on how to roll pinwheels. This would apply to all of your tortilla pinwheels, not just the Cheeseball Pinwheels.

Can I make pinwheels the day before

Yes. In fact, that’s how I roll <pun intended>. So, if you want them to hold their shape, make them the day before so they are firm.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pkg – 10 oz. Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp Accent
  • 1/2 – 1 2.25 Oz Armor Dried Beef
  • 1/2 Cup Green Onions, Chopped
  • 3 Flour Tortillas – 10″ Can use any size desired.
  • Saran Wrap

Instructions

  • If you haven’t already, lay out the cream cheese to soften for about 2 hours. (not included in passive time)
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, add the cream cheese.
  • Add the worcestershire sauce.
  • Add the Accent.
  • Chop beef to desired size. Add to bowl with other ingredients.
  • Chop green onions and add to bowl.
  • Mix ingredients in bowl well. Do obligatory taste test, of course.
  • Tear a piece of saran wrap, slight bigger than the tortilla. Place the tortilla in the center.
  • Spoon about 3-4 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture onto the tortilla. Spread a thin (or thick. Pick your poison) layer from edge to edge trying to keep it level.
  • Roll tortilla as tightly as you can without squeezing out all the cream cheese mix. The tighter it is, the less likely you are to have "holes" or air pockets. It will give you a solid slice.
  • Roll the rolled tortilla in the saran wrap and place in the refrigerator for 5 hours or overnight to set.
  • Once set, remove the tortilla from the refrigerator. Place on a cutting board. Cut the ends off where the folds aren't part of the pinwheel. Eat these portions because you earned it. Slice the remaining tortilla to your desired size. ENJOY!!

  1. Delicious??

  2. Genius combination! Crackers are quite a bit more messy. No crumbs is a great appeal for those family get togethers. Mom’s of little hands have to think of these things!
